‘Idol’ to sing at Jackson campaign event

Jackson mayoral candidate Harvey Johnson Jr. is calling on some star power leading up to next week’s general election.

American Idol star Ruben Studdard is set to perform at a Johnson campaign event today from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at Freelon’s Bar and Groove on North Mill Street.

The Johnson campaign has billed the event as “a free energize the vote concert.”
